Sanchez wants title fight with win Saturday


When Diego Sanchez first dropped to the lightweight division, he won two bouts and was awarded a title bout with BJ Penn. Sanchez would lose the bout and return to the welterweight division. Now having returned to the lightweight division, Sanchez is hopeful it's just two wins and he'll have another shot at the lightweight title, now held by Anthony Pettis:

"Gilbert Melendez is my golden ticket," Sanchez declared on Wednesday. "I've done it before. I fought two fights in 2009 at 155. Straight to the belt.

"(Melendez) has never been stopped. He avenged two of his three losses. His only loss is to Benson Henderson in a split decision that I felt went his way, so in a way I'm fighting a guy who's almost untainted. And if I go in there, and I stop this guy, I think it makes a real case for a title shot."

You are so cool.Your attention seeking is working, all your little circle jerk buddies laughed. Maybe they will vote you up and make you feel awesome for telling me the odds. haha Odds are you already know this but I'll remind youYour mom likes my donkey dick and your dad tries his best to make her happy to make up for the only disappointment he could give her. He always cleans her right up afterwards but seems depressed that you were somehow his strongest swimmer. Maybe you can grow up and be like him someday and set in the corner crying, It's not fair :(

Regardless of what happens with Diego in this fight, he always comes prepared and I'll always look forward to his battles.

When he got his title shot it was one of the most one sided beat downs in title fight history.

lol. Just because I want a million dollars doesn't mean it's going to happen.But Melendez is going to win, so pointless even talking about this.

Even if he gets past Gil, which he won't, I don't think he gets a title shot.
